Beautiful art. Thank you for sharing. The “glory and struggle” never end. Even when they are grown and have children of their own. You will always be their mama.
Thank you or your response Barbara. I am finding your words to be true.
The relationship is always precious
Thank you for responding, Bess.
What a beautiful follow-up to Becky’s essay about suffering the joy.
Thank you, Susan.
I read this haiku and realize I still ask myself this profound question. Even though you and I (I believe) are a generation apart. It’s very moving, the wonderful art work and the haiku. Thank you.
Thank you for your words and encouragement, Missy.
